Read the essay Teenagers and Jobs(page 367-368) provided in the book “College Writing
Skills” by John Langan (Part 2, Chapter 16) and summarize it in a paragraph of 120-150 words.
ANS 1. In today’s world everyone wants freedom, independence and their own spending money.
But the main concern we have for teenagers who work more than fifteen hours a week with their
studies. A teenager work can serve him well in their studies and college and prepare them for their
careers and they feel sense of responsibility and feel more independent. Earning money will make
him to buy things he wants and they can earn an expensive lifestyle. But some drawbacks are also
there, teen who work more than fifteen hours a week is associated with lower and bad grades and
they are not able to participate in extracurricular activities and social relationships and we all know
that teenage is not a mature age. When they have money they can spend in a wrong way like using
illegal drugs or alcohol and their minds become accustomed to a lifestyle they won’t be able to
afford several years back and they feel like they are not dependent on anyone for car insurance,
food, lodging, shopping and many other necessities as well as luxuries and with slot of pressure
from work and studies they become depressed and they can’t manage their work and studies at the
same time. So, they are more likely to involve in drugs and suicidal thoughts. Teenagers can enjoy
work while avoiding its drawbacks by limiting work hours during studies and lives a healthy life
with positivity.
